Certicom announces hardware security

Tuesday, 14 September 2004, 2:21 AM EST

Digital rights have become a bigger issue for the wireless industry in the last few years as music and other protected content is offered by carriers. Many of the digital protection schemes have focused on software. A different approach was announced today by Canada's Certicom, with security being embedded in the handset's hardware.

Certicom said its new Security Architecture of Mobility is being launched with Intel's new line of wireless chipsets, a family called the PXA27x and code-named Bulverde. Intel started volume production of the chipsets for cell phones and PDAs last spring. Some handsets using the processor could hit the market late this year or early 2005.
